Nestlé is voluntarily recalling all its refrigerated and frozen chocolate chip cookie dough. The FDA and CDC warn of the risk of contamination with E. coli O157:H7. In its release, Nestle says the following:
The CDC has a podcast telling kids the same thing: don’t eat raw cookie dough.
We have complimented Nestle for its food safety program in the past. As their release says, "The safety and quality of its products is a non-negotiable priority for Nestlé, and the company apologizes for any inconvenience cause by this voluntary recall. "
But there is good news: the recall doesn’t affect any chocolate chips, or any baked cookies.
